Abstract : This report provides an overview of the Basic Organizing/Optimizing Training Scheduler (BOOTS) system and its operation. The BOOTS is a computerized tool designed to aid in the creation of Master Training Schedules for each Navy Recruit Training Command. The system is defined in terms of three operating functions: data file editing in which the user defines the scheduling parameters and constraints, scheduling, in which the user either manually builds the training schedule while using the system to monitor all of the defined constraints or directs the system to optimize the schedule in terms of these constraints, using a Lambda-Opt heuristic, and data output generators for formatting and printing hard copies of the resultant schedules and supporting data.
